Stay smart! If you have not already done your Life Test for the INSS, read the article below.
Withdraws and pensioners from the INSS who have not yet submitted their life tests will have the benefit suspended. The blockade will occur later this month for policyholders who receive in late March / 2019 and early April / 2019 for those who receive in the first few business days.
How do I unlock my benefit?
For INSS beneficiaries who have had their retirement or pension blocked, they can carry out proof of life on the date the payment is deposited in the bank that receives the credit. The release is done on time, however, it may take a few days for the value to count. If you have not yet taken the life test or are in doubt about having it done, go to your agency as soon as possible.
Life proof must be done every 12 months for beneficiaries
Life proof must be done every 12 months for beneficiaries to reassess their passwords, to prove that they are alive and to maintain their active benefits. After 6 months after the deadline of 12 months, that is, after 18 months of not having the proof of life, the benefit is definitively ceased.
I did not do my life test, now what?
The proof of life is a mandatory measure since 2012 and brings more security to the citizen and the Brazilian state. To perform it simply present yourself in the bank where the benefit is deposited having in hand document with photo. If it is impossible to go to the agency, the insured can then make the proof of life through a legal representative or prosecutor previously registered with the INSS. Some banks perform the life test through biometrics.
